A Thank You
To Rev. Dr. Darryl Roberts, Ministerial Staff, Board of Deacons, Officers, Men’s Choir, and the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church Family,
We wish to express our sincere gratitude to you for your outpouring of love, sympathy, and support at the passing of our mother, Mrs. Freddie Dixon Williams Lindsay. Your phone calls, cards, kind words, and many prayers have helped us through a very difficult period. The gifts and condolences were so numerous, it would be difficult to acknowledge each and every one. I would like to send a special thank you to Brother James and Deaconess Brenda Tolbert for their assistance in issuing the announcement of our Mom’s passing. May God continue to bless you all! Brother Ronald and Sister Sheila Williams.
